Muriel is an exceptionally empathetic coach

I am thoroughly enjoying this podcast series. I was thrilled to hear about the second season and I truly hope they keep coming. I look forward to each new release and learn so much from each of them. It is clear to see how Muriel’s empathy and curious nature foster a safe place for guests to open up. The shared learnings not only positively impact my professional development but that of my Team as well. There are so many important learnings discovered through Muriel’s coaching - many of which I can relate to. Thank you for leading these podcasts and for all of your brave guests for their vulnerability and willingness to be a source of wisdom for other leaders. Thank you!

Finding my leadership voice

This is a fantastic episode. Thank you to both the host and the guest.

The guest was very descriptive of her thinking, action and her desired outcome. She hit home for me. I am not sure I could have articulated that well. Well done, and good luck achieving your goals.

The host, Muriel, is excellent! She recaps well and asks the right questions. I love your suggestions and analogy to an athlete—strengthening Mental, technical and physical strength.

Practical guidance throughout the session.

I thoroughly enjoyed it and looking forward to applying and changing my game!

Thank you 🙏
